Overview

Engages the complexities of teaching Latino/a students at Hispanic-Serving Institutions.

This groundbreaking collection brings together the eclectic voices of two-year and four-year writing teachers at Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) throughout the United States to explore the complexities of teaching writing with Latino/a students. Made up of narratives, qualitative studies, and conversations, the book presents the theories and practices of these experienced teachers. Its strength lies in the diversity of perspectives and methods used by these teachers to address many of the issues central to teaching Latino/a and other minority students: acknowledgment of difference, respect for diversity, student identity, students’ right to their own language, and the valuing of home and school literacies and languages.
